For those of you who love dairy products, take a moment to celebrate, June is Dairy month! What began in 1937 as a grocery store sponsored milk event has become an official event. Diary month takes time to recognize those farmers who produce dairy and those who support them.
Did you know that Virginia has a strong Dairy presense? In 2008, $1.6 billion dollars was generated by Virginia Dairy farmers. Virginia is ranked 23rd in milk production. So drink your milk, eat some cheese, and buy some ice cream, it helps if you buy from your local Dairy bar.
